Super

As I have noted many times on this site, I am a bit sick of super hero movies. Super could have been a in-joke laden parody of the genre but it avoided most of that in favor of dark comedy. Really, this is basically a retelling of Taxi Driver with tights instead of a mowhawk. At times it just screams, "Indy film!" but, nonetheless, it enjoyed the characters and story quite a bit.
